PATERSON, N.J. -- A string of armed robberies in Paterson was cracked with the arrests of three city men, authorities said Thursday.
Although investigators considered three holdups solved as a result, "additional victims are being called in by detectives," city Police Director Jerry Speziale said.
Two wedding bands were recovered, he said, adding that police were trying to find the owners.
Mariano Maldonado, 34, Victor Torres, 48 and Luis Pizarro, 39, are all charged with armed robbery and weapons offenses in connection with November robberies at Main and Mary streets, 136 16th Avenue and 204 21st Avenue, Speziale said.
Anyone with any additional information is asked to contact any of the detectives handling the investigation: Detective Lt. Daniel Rooney, Detective Sgt. Abe Hamdeh or Detectives Rich Martinez, Alonzo Bermudez, Steve Leishman or Daniel Findlay of the Paterson Police Major Crimes Division: (973) 321-1120 .
